Since you say you have two other machines working over the wireless it would appear the wireless router itself is working correctly. If you could answer the following it would help me direct you a bit better to an answer. Also the tests below will be easiest to follow along in XP as I don't have Vista in front of me right now so it would be easier to follow from the Dell.
- If you disconnect all of the machines from the wireless and only connect one of the problematic laptops does it still have problems?
- Is it actually disconnecting or just stops working? Do you still see it as being connected when it stops working?
- Will the problematic laptops reconnect if you repair the connection? (See instructions below)
If you don't know how to find something from one of my questions above just let me know.
